I need a new multimeter to replace my old one.  I wanted to get a high quality unit that was more focused at automotive repairs.  Anyone have any recommendations?

I was looking at this one from Innova:


It's a bit more than I want to spend, but it seems pretty decent.

Hey Vince,
 FWIW, I went to Lowes and bought a Southwire multimeter-AC/DC clamp meter, the clamp meter comes in handy when verifying electrical loads like checking electric fan motor amperage pull, how much amperage the alternator puts out or the amperage used for an automotive stereo system. I bought it a few years ago on sale, does quite a bit for under $100. Hope this helps.

Yeah, It's a Hybrid...It burns gas and tires.

Thanks for the info guys.  I will take a look at that one you suggested Todd.  John, the one I have is similar to yours.  My display is crapping out which is why I want to replace it.
